SALT LAKE CITY – The Liberty football team trolled BYU by celebrating with a Cougar Tail donut in the locker room after crushing the Cougars.

The Flames hosted the Cougars at Williams Stadium in Lynchburg, Virginia on Saturday, October 22.

Liberty blasted BYU, 41-14.

After the win, Flames nation stormed the field. In the locker room, the Liberty football team had a party.

Part of the part, including a prop, a donut from BYU, the university’s beloved Cougar Tail.

It’s unknown if the Cougar Tail was a re-created wrapper or a legitimate package from a donut sold at LaVell Edwards Stadium on BYU’s campus in Provo.

Regardless, the Flames celebrated their big blowout victory with the donut and even posed for pictures with it.

The loss was the BYU’s third straight defeat and fourth of the season. For Liberty, it was their seventh win of the season and improved the Flames’ record to 7-1. Liberty called the result a win that was “50 years in the making.” For the Cougars, it was a night to forget. BYU last experienced four losses in a season in 2019, when the Cougars finished their campaign with a 7-6 record.

With the loss, the Cougars dropped to a 4-4 record this season, including 1-2 on the road. BYU will look to secure bowl eligibility by winning two of its final four games.

BYU’s next game at home against the East Carolina Pirates on Friday, October 28 at 6 p.m. (MDT). The game will be broadcast on ESPN2 and KSL NewsRadio.
